Health & wellbeing

Emotional Wellbeing Websites

As a school we are both extremely proud of the resilience and adaptability that our children have shown, whilst also being acutely aware of the strains and pressures that have been put on all of our families during lockdown and the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19.  We are keen to support the children’s emotional wellbeing, for example through the Recovery Curriculum, but also wanted to provide parents and carers with a range of organisations that may be able to offer additional advice and support for families and children who are facing particular difficulties.  With this in mind, please find below a list of websites that parents / carers can access directly.
